Our Fabrics & Dyes
Organic Cotton ( GOTS )
Knitted & Dyed in Melbourne. Our Organic cotton is grown in controlled settings with no pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals. Only natural fertilisers are used and the soil and water are monitored. Unlike conventional cotton, which is seriously damaging to the environment, our certified organic cotton is farmed naturally, without the use of chemicals. Eliminating the availability of these harmful chemicals in cotton is the first step in a more sustainable and chemical free future. Organic cotton feels softer, smells cleaner, and is less likely to trigger allergies.
The GOTS certified & organic cotton yarn is knitted at local mills and our signature colours are dyed using ACO ( Australian Certified Organic) dyes. The remainder of our fabrics are 100 % hemp or organic cotton blends that we purchase from a local supplier.
Knitted in China ( currently no yarn is imported into Australia, so we must source from responsible sources and import ) & Dyed in Melbourne. Hemp can grow in almost any environment with little to no need for fertilisers, making it the most eco-friendly crop to grow. Hemp clothing is long lasting, durable, absorbent and will soften over time. Hemp is also the highest UV resistant fabric.
Knitted & dyed Melbourne. Merino is a natural, thermo regulating fibre, meaning its breathability ( also known as wicking properties ) keep you cooler in the warmer months and warm in the winter. Our Merino is currently knitted and dyed locally and at our Responsible Wool Standard accredited facility. Ethical standards are very important when it comes to wool and are therefore working on a traceable supply chain.
Australian Certified Organic Dyes, dyed in Melbourne. All our organic cotton jerseys are dyed locally using ACO dyes - a non toxic certified dye. Our local dyeing facility also has an exceptionally high standard of processing waste water, recycling and disposing of dye waste to fertilise nearby crops.
